Family & Carer Support
Our Family and Carer Support service aims to contact all people admitted to Russells Hall Hospital with a stroke, and within 7 days of their discharge to offer support for up to twelve months before transferring them to our long-term support team. Support may be offered in many ways, this includes meeting people initially on the ward; visiting them at home; putting them in touch with groups that may help them or referring to other agencies. For some, that regular contact may be a call once a week, fortnight, or month to check all is ok and let them know that they are not alone, that there is a friendly voice, and sympathetic ear always willing to listen, that we are always only a phone call away.
6 week, 6 and 12 month stroke reviews
Dudley Stroke Association has been commissioned by Dudley CCG to carry the stroke reviews out on their behalf
The 6 week and 12-month reviews are carried via a telephone call and the 6 months by a home visit when people also have their BP checked. All people reviewed are provided with a copy of the review for their own information
People who we visited have said how good it was to be contacted, that is is good to know you haven't been forgotten, and we were able to provide many with advice and information
Have you had a review, we would like to hear your views,
